Description

Having thought for over 5 years at college level and having seen most of the PHP Courses on this platform, I bring you what is missing for free. Learning, according to the dictionary, is to gain or acquire knowledge of or skill in (something) by study, experience, or being taught. To gain or acquire knowledge, you need to understand the concept of the topic, how it's used and when to use it. Most teachers on this platform are not doing that. Teaching is an art, it involves more than just taking screen shots or videos of what you are doing and telling people to do it with you. Teaching involve explanations. You may follow an instructor to build a very cool app but would you be able to do it again by yourself? Only if you understood. You need to understand a topic before you can practice how it's used, but if your used it without understanding it, then you are not learning it. Take this course and learn to understand PHP. Convert abstract text to programmable meanings and uses. 

Anyone  from beginner can take this course.  If you want to learn from the basics to the advance level and build a Database Web Application, Kindly take the full course for only $12
